Philippe Bozon's conferences
As the first French-born ice hockey player to appear in the National Hockey League, Philippe Bozon is the epitome of tenacity and motivation.
With his leadership and resolve to take the team forward, Philippe was always a key player for his coaches and team mates.
Entirely selfless in his attitude and always putting the team’s interests first – even when injured, he never once hesitated to return to the arena – Philippe Bozon has invariably remained in the hearts of the fans of the clubs that helped him hone his talent.
Philippe finally hung up his skates in 2006, with close to 650 matches under his belt at professional level, including 189 with the French national team. But there was no leaving the world of ice hockey: between 2004 and 2009, Philippe was Director of Training and the Junior Movement at the Genève-Servette Hockey Club, before embarking on a coaching career. First in Switzerland, working with Lugano (a club he had played for between 1999 and 2001) and then with Sierre. The 2014-2015 season saw him heading the French Gaymo d’Épinal team, which he took to the final of the Magnus Cup before differences of opinion led him to seek a new challenge. He has been coaching the Bordeaux Boxers since March 2016.
